I come from a long line of cooks, my Grandma Phoebe, mother Bette, and sister Julie started teaching me early. I now am a school cook, which isn't the place to be the most creative though.
My favorite things to cook
Probably cookies rank #1, then pies, cakes, bars, and soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are big Christmas cookie bakers. Each year my sister has my mother and I over to make cookies, we always have a lot of fun!
My cooking triumphs
I am proud of the blueberry pie I created for a pie auction that got the highest bid, think it went for $85!
My cooking tragedies
Cheese straws, made them for my son's Mississippi state project. Didn't care for those at all, most my tragedies occurred as a new cook :)
